hey guys im planning on picking up a 05 wrx in the near future. i am going to be 17 when i get the car and have been saving up every dime possible for the past year. My parents are going to help me out iwth the car but i am going to be paying the bigger portion of the car. My question is what do you think is a better option a lease plan and then buy out or trade in for newer model or a straight up buy? i appreciate all opinions.

what you should do depends on many things.

Do you plan to mod it?
Are you the type of person that will get tired of the car a few years down the road?
Do you drive a lot?

yes i fear that i will have that prob because i was highly into BMX and i was always at the bike shop and sunk many many bucks into my bike. But i am worried about getting a lemon and things like that. Also i dont know how the fact that i am a new driver will play. i am scared of getting into accidents and so on.

BMX damn...that brings back memories...

I remember back then I was so into flatland tricks. If only I didn't have my bikes stolen. I locked both of my bikes on the backyard and they were both taken the same night. That's 1,100 worth! I never buy another bike afterwards...sigh... I still remember the first trick that I learned "tailwhip:" baby!! :rotfl: :wiggles:

Leasing sound great up front, but is NOT a great financial decision, unless you have some way to write it off on your taxes, or other considerations.

I've seen too many people hurt by leases. If you are in a business, it will usually work quite well, but for the average Joe, it ends up costing more in the long run. There was a thread on here a ways back that was discussing the pros and cons of a lease. It turned into a pretty good debate. I can't find it though :sadwave:

If you can only afford to lease it, you cannot afford the car at all.

If you can afford to either lease it or to buy it, and you cannot write the cost of the lease off as a business expense, either buy it, buy something else, or use public tranport.

Another vote for buy. Just like everyone said, there is a very good chance that you will get f'ed if you lease.
